Good news! It is great to see that spreading the word about some animal misery can lead to success. This time it is the end to the coyote killing contest:

“Victory! ALDF reached a settlement with the organizer of the annual JMK Coyote Hunting Contest in Harney County, Oregon. One result of the settlement is that the killing contest will not continue in future years — great news for wildlife! The event, held annually for eight seasons, required hunters to “buy in” to the contest by paying an entry fee of $100. Top teams won cash prizes totaling more than $10,000 for various kills, including ´most kills´ and ´largest kill.´”
